    Within Ireland , VRT tax commanded on a new car or anything with a bit of power ; 1990's Jap car makes sense for performance , build quality, Condition 2nd hand JDM cars for a reasonably affordable price

    New M5, GTR RS6 here starts at 130K to 180K with some extra's, annual Motortax 2100

    New M4 ex-extras 120K
    R34 prices are just crazy, I have no idea why people pay that much, always preferred a midnight purple 33 GTR anyway, especially now they are a fraction of the price.

    I bought all 3 Supras because they are iconic. Great to look at even 24 years after they first came out - they set the benchmark by which all other JDM and tunable cars were and still are judged. As JamieP said, for lbft, nothing much else comes close that entertains, has some soul and actually requires you to drive it. Yes you could have far newer, more powerful cars but as many will testify, they lack soul, driver feel and involvement. They're a 90s poster car and whilst I would love to own a 997 I can never see myself selling the Supra - it's a part of me. he 997 I would have and would have no qualms about selling. And that's one of its defining qualities, it's a car you can have a 'relationship' with for all it's 90s foibles and age-related quirks, it's a car that generates passion. And it becomes part of you.

    I remember thumbing through a mid-90s Parkers Guide. I treated it like Top Trumps - looking for the highest powered car. I don't think Parkers listed supercars. I remember their description: "looks like a space ship, and goes like one too".

    My supra has been a garage queen some years it's done zero miles but when I do go out it feels great still very tight and smooth for a 20 year old car it just shows how good and advanced it was.
    And although I drive a new range rover and a 5 year old bmw 530d any chance I get i would take my supra

    It was not removed by me. It's not about witty comebacks, I stand by what I said.

    I am not liked here, I know that. If you have opinions that don't conform, you will be outcast.

    I get annoyed that people don't seem to realise that not everyone has money to throw away left right and centre on cars. I don't think this is the right community for me, but in the absence of any others, it's this or nothing.

    I've learnt over the years that if you have nothing constructive to say then say nothing, negative, diggy comments like yours will always attract the "wrong" attention.

    It would be interesting to see if the market got flooded (i'm only talking 5-10 TT6's!) in the 14-17K range whether they'd all sell.

    Nobody has said you're not liked, that's in your head. If your posts were, shall we say, a bit more positive, you might get a bit more positive reaction. Please tell us the good things about your Supra? What do you like about it? Why do you have one? I have mine as it's a bit agricultural compared to modern cars, its fun to drive, it craps you out and wakes you up when the back end steps out somewhat unexpectedly, it sounds fecking ace, it looks sexy. Like others have said I've looked at other cars and keep thinking naa I'll keep it a bit longer. And no I haven't got lots of money either.

    Friend of mine has an RS6 and an S8, in fact you might remember him from DB, Pedro!! Well it's always broken, something always needs fixing and it is VERY expensive when it goes wrong which it does often.

    He couldn't believe on DB the amount of power some cars were running and the fact the guys had been pushing the cars around Europe and driving back home. In his words if he did that on the RS6 by the end of it something would give way.

    Also I left him drive my Supra and he said that he could feel everything, even down to the road surface changing. Both his Audi's the drive was numb, speed was quick but he didn't feel the same sensation as he did in the Supra even though his RS6 was much faster.

    Couldn't sleep so thought I'd hop on, think it's been nearly year since I last signed in!!

    I would love to! TT6 here starts around 40k for a shabby example! Such a limited supply here too but they attract far more attention than exotica.

    Just had a look now and one has come up 2 days ago, best example I have seen so far!! Seems to be in good condition for 42k.
